ISLAMABAD: The Metro bus service has been suspended in the twin cities after a strike by employees over non-payment of salaries here on Thursday.

According to a local TV, the ticketing staff of the Metro bus service went on strike against the non-payment of salaries, resulting in suspension of service in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

The employees staged a sit-in at the IJP station, demanding immediate payment of their salaries.
